Very entertaining
25 August 2017 | by glangendoenSee all my reviews

Just like "Aluvayers" said : a remake of the classical movie. I was hoping this movie was a lot like "The Night That Panicked America (1975)" and i wasn't disappointed, in fact this one was even funnier. And of course the whole nostalgic view of the radio days and the dangers of people scaring themselves with the unknown. Good Job !
